We're getting rid of wildness before we have the faintest idea of what we're eliminating. We have got to stop. We can stop by going back to where we've been and doing better there, not by going on further with the idea that we need more and more and more. I think we're getting tired of trashing wildness. It's not making us happy and it's not making us healthy; it's making us miserable and despairing.
